TWQQF ch 380 - The Misunderstanding was Resolved; The Visit of the Parents (5)

“Uncle Zhou, never mind how I got these. All we need to know is that that can use them and that they can solve our financial problems.”

Cheng Xiao Xiao wasn’t too worried. She kept half of the gold inside the dimension, for sure the Cheng’s would not run out of money anytime soon.

“HE HE, I knew Miss would figure something out. These will be our Count Zhongyuan’s Masnion’s proprietary gold coins as well as our unique symbol from now on. I quite like that idea.” Said Old Man Ying with a smile as he toyed with the gold coins.

The Elder slightly nodded and said, “Exactly like Elder Ying had said. We are certainly ahead of the trend by being the first to come out with these unique gold coins. On top of that, these gold coins are not only very presentable in their looks, but also convenient to carry around with when one goes out.”

“Good. Then we will exclusively use these kind of gold coins from now on!”

“Xiao Xiao, you will have more of these gold coins?” Even Cheng Biyuan found that incredulous. His daughter simply has too many secrets; it was almost like there was no problems that she couldn’t solve.

Cheng Xiao Xiao nodded slightly and said, “Yes, I will have more!”

Everybody looked at each other and were speechless.

Now that one problem was solved, Zhou Jinjiang brought up another one, “Our house is finally nearing completion. When we started, we had taken into consideration a clan’s facilities and parameters, but now, now are more like a prominent family than a clan. What are My Lord and Xiao Xiao’s thoughts on this?”

“If we are going to go down the path of a family, we will only need to recruit martial master or martial spirituals as guards to protect everyone. But if we want to go down the path of developing ourselves into a clan, then we should arrange to get the news out that we accepting new disciples. After all, disciples are our future and we shouldn’t waste any more time but to get on it immediately.”

“Don’t you think we are rushing this a little? There are so much opening items that still demand our attention that occupy all our time, every day. Is this really the right time to bring in more disciples?”

Cheng Biyuan frowned. He felt that the idea was a bit pre-mature.

“Not too soon!” Zhou Jinjiang took a look at them before turning to Cheng Xiao Xiao and asked, “Xiao Xiao, what are your thoughts?”

“Shouldn’t be a problem. It’s not like we can’t support more people. It will be nice to have more bodies to help out around here. The question should be whether we will be able to recruit any disciples!”

Cheng Xiao Xiao also felt that if they really want to continue to grow, they will need more than just one or two people; they will need a collective group of individuals. The Cheng’s right now are a bit short on manpower.

Other than the houseboys and maids, it was just the dozen or so disciples from Willows. Even though they overall headcounts is over a hundred, but for a prominent family or a clan, that number is nothing. Naturally they would need to recruit more.

“It wouldn’t be that difficult to recruit disciples!” Mo Xuanzun chimed in suddenly. “father-in-law, all we need to do is to spread the news that any one below the age of 15 residing within Qing’an Province can join the Cheng’s Family. Ugh, father-in-law, have you thought about a clan name yet?”

“Can’t say that I have!”

Cheng Biyuan felt a bit helpless. He had never really thought about that before, so he had no choice but to throw that responsibility onto his daughter, “Xiao Xiao, would you like to come up with a name for our clan?”

“Dad, don’t you think it will be better for you to come up with one?” Cheng Xiao Xiao wasn’t sure what to make of that.

“Nah, all the same. Why don’t you come up with something!”

“Well, in that case, why don’t we get anybody’s input on it?”

Cheng Xiao Xiao couldn’t think of anything right away so she passed it off onto everyone. Smiling, she said, “This place belongs to us all, so we should try to come up with a name together!”

  1. I'm more interested if they will be trading their items for their gold only in addition to mystical stones/devices;
    And allowing others to buy the gold coins by using common currency.
    Because otherwise they have 2 million golden monopoly coins worth nothing.

    Currency does not just suddenly exist. Else I'd just put my face on a few scribble papers and be a millionaire.

    1. If I have millions of dollars worth of gold, it doesn't matter what shape I put it in or what pictures I draw on it, it will still be millions of dollars worth of gold.

      Before paper money, people used coins that had a value based on what they where made from, not on who made them. So their gold coins won't have a worth that is much different from any other gold coins.
